Baofeng GT-5TP not recognized
I bought a pair of Baofeng GT-5TP radios on fleabay
Both radios were recognized by chirp, downloaded configured and uploaded using the UV-82HP config.
One arrived with transmit audio issues, vendor replaced the radio body
New radio will not download to Chirp, tried UV-82HP and BF-F*HP no joy. Chirp returns a model not recognized issue
I have attached the debug log.
This looks wrong: [2017-04-04 12:38:47,750] chirp.drivers.uv5r - INFO: Radio Version is '\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff'

- Status changed from New to Feedback
It is wrong. Your radio is not reporting its firmware version to CHIRP. Many Baofeng radio models have recently began shipping this way.
This unfortunate change has been reported multiple times. I recommend that you follow "this issue":http://chirp.danplanet.com/issues/4445 where it is currently being addressed. You could also try the test driver that is available there (but I don't remember if it addresses the the addition of the UV-82 variants like you have - it initially started out as being limited to UV-5R variants). Also a patch has been submitted to work around this issue (and it does address the UV-82 variants like the GT-5TP).
